the continuation of BOMF right after the last point, WARNING SPOILER HEAVY
Crossbow vs M9. We know pretty lots of designing details for Arm Slaves but that's not too important. M9 is fast and dodges all Sousuke's attacks, but thanks to his piloting skill he's not hurting that much from enemy fire (at least not critical hits). He evaluates all possible tactics and his experisnces, this fight can only last for 8-15 minutes for him. But if he catch up with any flaws from the M9 within this time limit......?
Elsewhere, Nami and her gang are watching at the "fireworks" from the temple in a far place, surrounded by cops. They have some discussions/worries about Sousuke, but as they talk one of the cop receives orders and take Nami away, while the rest of others get on another truck.
On the mountain top 2 km away from the temple, the Officer and Kuruma are watching the match in a reinforced bunker. Kurama comments that if he pilots that "white thingy" again, he won't lose. Obviously, the Officer knows nothing about that "white thingy" and Gauron. It's revealed that the pilot knows nothing about Sousuke, and that M9 is the result of that massive strike. Though both of them feel sure that Savage can't win over M9.
Elsewhere, the rest of Nami's gang are brought to a farm, and the cops tell them to stand in a line. They realizes that they're about to be shot to death.......but Lemon shows up from nowhere, who's supposed in jail. The cops tell him to die as well, but before that Lemon tells the gang to lay down, and then he speaks in French: "Kill." In an instant the cops are dying around, all being shot in the head, in just 3 seconds. The gang wonders what happened, but Lemon doesn't tell them much, though he thinks Sousuke is approaching his objective------which is persumably the same with theirs.
The AS fight continues. Sousuke takes the chance to dodge whenever he can, for M9 can still have good aim in the air. Seeing his attacks are ineffective, the M9 turns on ECS. Sousuke has nothing to do with it......And he retreats to the temple behind him. Crossbow is shot in the front but thanks to the armour, it's not too a big deal. He hides and exchange for the last Magazine of his rifle, in addition to his Heat Hammers. Crossbow also suffer some hits beforehand and can't hold for long, so he takes on a gamble. He wildly fires his shots upon the pillars around, destroying them until he has 1 shot left. Dust filled the air so that even M9 can't detect him, but still it rushes into the chapel, with ECS off. He fires the last bullet, the M9 dodges, but Sousuke already pulls out a Heat Hammer and slam it on the pillar beside him. Explosion causes the ceiling to collapse, and both AS are buried under the rubble. The Crossbow hardly stands up upon the debris, and the M9 is still being buried because of the design differences between the 2 AS. (Try to guess it before Ravyn translate these) He easily grabs the M9's head and slams another Heat Hammer upon its reactor, disabling it.
The Officer shouts in shock. Kurama feels bad but admits Sousuke is a one hell pilot that he never see such a guy before. Then he thinks that even using the girl captured by Mr.Ag (ditto) as a lure, his loyalty won't be assured if there's a chance to secure her safety, and will fight against Amalgam evetually. So, the only option is to kill him.
Next chapter: Additional Damage
To be continued......
Obviously ,hope is the first step to the road of disappointment.
But no fear, people can only overcome disappointment when one still has hope in the mind.
So keep on fighting UNTIL THE GOAL IS REACHED!!
